After being trained as a classical Chef Mark has long awaited the opportunity to open his own restaurant. With his spin on classic food with a modern twist, he has always believed that if he cooks with the passion that he clearly has then his venture would be a very successful one. 

"I just love cooking, every part of it! From preparing fresh produce to watching the look on customers faces whilst enjoying my food!"

Gareth has been part of successful ventures within a family run environment and when he saw Mark's passion he couldn't help but get excited about a joint venture within the restaurant business. Along with his father, Malcolm, we think that we have created a warm and family environment with superb food that all will enjoy. 

Come and join us for what we believe will be a superb dining experience with friendly welcoming staff and great food!! Please also join us at our newest addition at the Segedunum Roman Fort - Evan's on the Wall.....

Our dining is on a first come, first served basis. However, if you have a large party, are planning an event, or need catering services, drop us a line and we'll hook you up.
